That is most likely inside the transmission. IF the fluid level is ok and all the wires to the transmission are ok, it is time for an overhaul

SOURCE: 95 Lexus ES 300 check engine light is on and the overdrive off light is flashing

chances are you don't have to replace the computer. the reason i tell you this is because you did not mention that the car is running lousy. no complaints of rough idle or missfire or hard starting. chances are that your engine speed sensor which sends the signal to the computer which then controls the transmission is most likely the culprit.. and it could just bhe that there is a loose connection between the two. if that is ok then your transmission control module is faulty. this is not the main computer, but the gobetween the trans and the ecm.. hope this helps please rate this...thanks(btw....the knock sensors control timing not the trans mission)

I shifted my 2002 grand Cherokee Laredo sport from 2 whl to 4 whl and now it seems to be stuck in 4 whl when I shift back to 2 whl drv?

its grand cherokee, WJ jeep

if it has quadradrive,
its full time
but do no use 4wd low on pavement with no ice
got this, see the words there?

it can also have quadra-trac2, but it has same rules.
missing 4wd low. requires no driver inputs.
(means full time)

first learn what is there (they are options,)
this 4wd system
then look it up
here and read

post a photo of your stick shifts, related
and its obvious what your car had new, in 4wd.

check all fuses
then scan it.
using any OBD2 scan tool, modern.
that is first.
if the scans tell you there are problems
then work them or ask for help
or read the service manual on 4wd diagnosis.
or get it serviced.

How to switch on overdrive for mazda demio aletta

lots of mazda vehicles have a small button on the shifter, usually on the side or somewhere not very visible. Generally overdrive is actually ON and pressing the button will turn on a light that indicates Overdrive is OFF. since overdrive is kind of a passing gear - if you are going uphill or towing something and do not want the vehicle to shift to a higher, larger gear, you would turn overdrive OFF .

99 ford contour with flashing OD light and transmission shifts narly, also sounds like its stuck in 3rd gear and refuses to shift into 4th

normally most overdrives wont work unless proper fluid levels are maintained..check fluid level on stick and add to full..if still having issues, replace filter in trans pan and refill to full.if still having issue time to replace..good luck

Try putting your transmission in neutral and slowly shifting the 4wd selector to each position but you have to wait a few seconds between selsctions as it has to go through your vehicles computer, shifting to fast will cause your symptoms. I hope this helped you out. Roger
